If you take a look outside you'll see the cloud cover associated with tropical depression Cristobal. This system will continue working north the next couple of days, eventually bringing scattered rainfall chances later Tuesday and Wednesday. Outside of this tropical system, make sure you are staying cool and hydrated today. High's this afternoon will be in the low to mid 90's and feel-like temps will be pushing the triple digits for some.
There is good news working ahead as we'll finally get a break from the heat and humidity later this week. A cold front working in from the west will move through late Wednesday, providing cooler and drier air Thursday and Friday. A secondary front into the weekend will keep temperatures at to slightly below average Saturday and Sunday.
The first half of the week will be muggy, warm, and wet at times, so be prepared. As Cristobal moves north, some of the outer bands of precipitation will impact east TN tomorrow and early Wednesday. A better chance for showers (and a few storms) will appear Wednesday as a front closes in. By Wednesday night, skies will begin clearing as cooler air and sunshine return for Thursday and through the weekend.
If you can make it through the first half of the work week, the second looks to be beautiful! As always, more details can be found in our daily forecast video below. Have a good Monday!
